Does it show up like text ?

If so you may be dealing
with double extensions!

Solution: Go to your Web Folder
Click on Tools -> Folder Options
and click on View , unselect "Hide
Extensions For Known File Types"

It is not showing up as text. the page is showing up blank. there is nothing on it all. Is that the way it should be. I thought that the words hello world would show up some where.

Make a blank text file, and put this in it:
Code:
<?php
phpinfo();
?>

Then rename the text file from .txt to .php and put it in /htdocs (assuming you have the "/*.php" set up in your CGI Configuration). Then go to http://localhost/filename.php (replace the file name with whatever you called it) and tell me what happens.

this is the test.php that I was trying to get to work
<html>
<body>
<?php echo "Hello World"; ?>
</body>
</html>

Is there something there that sould not be? I got this from a internet web site. Should it be saved as an html or a php?

I am using windows 98 with a server program called abyss. I don't understand why one script would work and the other did not.

I tried the one that was posted on this site.

You Need The Following !

Microsoft Data Access Components

Your server will not run PHP script untill
it has been installed , this happened to me!

Yes I tried this script that was given to me on this forum
<?php
phpinfo();
?>

although I did not add the <html> </html> to it. It still ran (I think) because it opened up a download with for the one program that I us when I download from the internet.

So I don't really knowwhat is going on here. also what is and where do I get the Microsoft Data Access Components that TRUSTpunk is talking about?


Also here are the CGI settings

CGI Interpreters
Interpreter Associated Extensions
c:\php\php.exe php



CGI Paths
Path
/cgi-bin
/





User CGI Environment Variables
Name Value
REDIRECT_STATUS 200

I believe that this is right?

Thanks for the help!! If figured out what the probem was. I forgot how dum windows 98 can be when it comes to finding a file. I had to go back into the abyss setup for php and point it directly to the folder that the php.exe was in to get it to work.
